They Suck!

1/ 5

I called these people to book a destination wedding and the service was very poor. The travel consultant did not listen to my travel needs and so they lost out on a 50 room commission…Please do not use them!

Thank You Jim and Diann for making our destination wedding a dream come true. The wedding itself was nothing short of amazing! You made it fun and so much easier! Thanks again. Marian and Ed

Great Escape Travel Review

5/ 5

When we first set out to plan our honeymoon, I was very skeptical about using a travel agent. To be honest, they do not always have the best reputation. Jim at Great Escape Travel completely made our honeymoon. From researching places based on our needs and wants to getting everything sorted out- Jim covered it all. Jim was either available or got right back to me anytime I called. Great Escape Travel is not about getting your money, Jim would not even let us book right away on the spot- he wanted us to go home and think about it. Everything went perfectly and we had a honeymoon that I am recommending to all of my friends and family. We saved a ton of money, had incredible upgrades, and had a trip we will remember forever. We were completely taken care of every step of the way and we will continue to use Jim for all of our traveling needs- whether it is out of the country or within!

We used Jim at Great Escape Travel for our February 2012 El Dorado Royale, Riviera Maya, Mexico wedding. We had 65 individuals from across the country (Michigan, Mississippi, California, Texas, Colorado, Pennyslvania, Washington DC, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, etc) who he arranged travel plans for. Jim worked with us over the period of 16 months to plan everyones hotel stays, and some flights as well. He coordinated everything perfectly with our wedding planner at the resort, and even surprised us with a limo in Mexico to take us to our resort. Everything went off without a hitch and our entire group was thrilled!

My wife and I used Sonnie w/ Great Escape Travel for our honeymoon. While the honeymoon itself was amazing, our experience with Great Escape was less than terrible. Sonnie only seemed to care about us paying for the trip. She never once followed up with us on our plans, did not see if we needed anything in preparation for the honeymoon. Once when we called in with questions, she did not even remember that we were doing a honeymoon and not a destination wedding. We booked our trip in October 2011 and received our itinerary. In March, 2012 (a month before the trip), she sent her only communication outside of payment related communication. It was actually a completely changed itinerary, but she didn’t mention that it had changed at all in the e-mail. Just said “Here’s your itinerary, and AA does not charge for baggage.” We had to call our resort direct for questions on things like what we should be packing. We were unaware the resort used US dollars because she didn’t give us any of this kind of information. We thought getting a travel agent would mean we don’t need to be the ones responsible for making sure everything was good to go and ready for our trip, had it not been for an amazing receptionist at the airline, we would have missed the first day of the honeymoon. I would NEVER use this company again and recommend not using them to anyone else.
